“According to the court, the plaintiff states have completed the requirements for a temporary injunction,” says the resolution of the United States Judiciary.
Likewise, through his official Twitter account, one of the requesting Republican leaders, the governor of Texas, Greg Abbottconfirmed the ruling.
“A Federal court prevents Biden from ending Title 42. The court granted a nationwide injunction to keep Title 42 in place,” the Republican president said.
